HTC One US Developer Edition RUU And Full ROM ZIP Posted, ROM Addicts Breathe A Sigh Of Relief

Do you hear that? It's the sound of a thousand HTC fans modding the crap out of their shiny new HTC One Developer Edition smartphones. The Taiwanese company just posted the RUU (ROM Update Utility) for the American version of the One DE, giving would-be tinkerers a safe way to restore their devices if something goes boom. You can download the RUU at HTC's Developer Center. We'd post some direct links for you, but HTC is insisting you go through the Downloads page.

[Deal Alert] AT&T's 32GB HTC One $150 ($50 Off) For New Accounts And Upgrades From Amazon Wireless

While HTC's newest flagship may have just hit the streets a few days ago, that hasn't stopped Amazon Wireless from starting to hack away at the price. The company is offering AT&T's 32GB variant of the device for $150, which is $50 off what Big Blue is asking right out of the gate. That price is good for both new contracts and upgrades, so it's a worthy deal for anyone looking to grab what could be HTC's best handset to date.

PSA: HTC One Available Today On AT&T And Sprint [Update: T-Mobile, Too]

I've noticed something different with the HTC One: people are actually excited about it. I can't say that I've ever seen such a response to an HTC phone in recent years, so that's a good thing. This phone is hitting the scene at a crucial time for HTC, and with people calling it "the best Android phone" in existence right now (or even this year), it could be the saving grace needed to pull the company from its recent slump.

HTC One With Free Car Dock Now Live At T-Mobile.com - Order Yours For $99.99 + $20/Month Or $579.99 Lump Sum

The HTC One page just went live at t-mobile.com, so if you've been lusting after what David called the most important phone of 2013 (read his review to understand the reasoning behind such a bold statement), you can finally secure the Glacial Silver version online. It doesn't look like the Stealth Black variant is up yet if you were looking for one of those, but on the upside T-Mobile is throwing in a free car dock with the purchase.

HTC One Deep-Dive Review: The Most Important Smartphone This Year May Also Be The Best

Yep, I'm calling it: the HTC One is the most important smartphone that will be released this year. And I know, this year is far from over - but let me explain why I think it will hold true regardless of what's to come.

Right now, the smartphone industry is slowly but surely evolving into a duopoly. Samsung and Apple control a larger piece of the proverbial pie than ever, as almost every other major Android OEM's market share shrinks - a trend that has continued for nearly two years now.

HTC's Bachelorette Spoof, Featuring The One And James Van Der Beek, May Be The Best Worst Phone Commercial Ever

HTC needs to get the message out about the One. This probably isn't the best way to go about it.

The 3.5-minute ad on Funny Or Die has some genuine guffaws, but they're buried in awkward pauses, cringe-inducing costumes, and James Van Der Beek's grizzled chin. The Beek has been making a quiet, enjoyable comeback lately (see his meta self-performance on Apartment 23), but this baffling display of wannabe viral marketing can only hurt both his and HTC's image.

HTC Profits Take A Dive: Q1 Is The Lowest-Profit Quarter On Record Following One Delay

There is no joy in Taoyuan this morning, as HTC's first quarter financial results have become public. The Taiwanese company has reported the lowest profit in its 16-year history, with just $2.8 million USD ($85 million Taiwanese dollars) in net income for Q1 2013. It's the sixth quarter in a row that HTC has posted declining profits, and a staggering year-over-year drop of 98%.

The news came from a somber release on HTC's website, without any of the usual fanfare.

On Dealbreakers And Breakthroughs: Why You Really Shouldn’t Hate Any High-End Smartphone Right Now

In Android Police’s private chat room – deep in the bowels of a place known only to a select few… Android Police writers – conversations are often had over what makes a phone good, and what makes a phone bad.

And, of course, views on this issue vary. Some have a strong preference for stock Android, and anything attempting to subvert or otherwise ‘break’ Android the way Google intended it (unless Google’s intentions sucked) is a waste of time.
